A NARRATIVE OF WHAT PASSED AT THE REVOLUTION HOUSE, AT WHITTINGTON, COUNTY OF DERBY, IN THE YEAR 1688. WITH A PERSPECTIVE VIEW, AND PLAN OF THAT COTTAGE
Printed by Samuel Tupman, Nottingham 1788 - 11,[1]pp. plus plate. Oblong small quarto. Contemporary sewn marbled wrappers. Old vertical crease, with short break in lower margin at crease, small tidemark in gutter at crown of spine, modest foxing, early ink name inside upper wrapper, otherwise a very good copy. First edition of this work commemorating the 1688 Revolution, accompanied by an engraving of the house, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire, by Hayman Rooke. The whole, including the text derived from a letter from Pegge, was prepared by Rooke for presentation to friends, and his prefatory note to that end has a small textual revision, in ink. Both Rooke and Pegge made considerable contributions to the antiquarian and topographical studies of the area. An uncommon production; ESTC Online locates six copies: BL, Bodleian, Nottinghamshire County Library, Yale, Harvard and UCLA. ESTC N9997.
